Default OK, now someone has my web site!

I think my domain name, Excelsior Rocketry, kinda got taken away from me.

I have no personal affection for Excelsior (it the slogan or something of New York state).

But does anybody know how I can get it back?

Gordo,

I sent you a request for a quote on some items. I hope you are not going anywhere? How about a Go Fund me page to raise $$ to get Domain back?? I see several chatting about it on TRF. Please do not go off into the sunset.

How can they register a domain that's already registered? Did you let it lapse?

Good grief.

FWIW, excelsior-rocketry.com (and .net and .biz and others) is available, as are most of the other variants of excelsiorrocketry besides ".com".

Philosophically I'd hate to reward those clowns in Australia for doing this, even if it's a relatively small amount for such things. But I don't know how much other stuff you'd have to change to change the domain name you are using.

The Whois that Shrox posted still shows you as the registrar, just that the registration has lapsed....

I've never had to get a registration back, so I can't add much.

Except to say 'Thanks' for the reminder. My own primary domain was expiring in August.

Where's the "like" button when I need it...

To me, that's just how the "Terribly Run Forum" (TRF) operates... create a problem, and then SELL you the solution.

I say "screw you!" to guys that do that, not reward them...

To each his own, however...

Later! OL JR
